YMMV / Goober and the Ghost Chasers

  • Follow the Leader: This show has a very distinctive part in the Hanna Barbera meddling kids trend. While it clearly is partly following Scooby-Doo, a lot of its variations from Scooby ended up becoming more common in later Scooby installments. So Goober followed Scooby, yet Scooby later followed Goober's lead.
    • On one base level, Ted is essentially our straight guy leader. Tina is his beta, who is the pretty redhead girl like Daphne. But Tina is a reporter here and not that ditzy. Daphne, of course, in the later years lost her "danger prone" gimmick and her career of choice was a reporter.
    • While Gillie may look to be drawn like Shaggy, in reality the Goober and Gillie dynamic is actually a predecessor to the Scooby and Scrappy dynamic. Goober would run away like a coward while Gillie stayed behind to take pictures, resulting in Goober rushing back to save Gillie.
    • The Real After All references would later be utilized in some Scooby productions, although it was featured in Goober episodes years before any Scooby show itself used the trope.
    • Lastly, guest stars appear in this show as well, just as in The New Scooby-Doo Movies.
